Post all "Knock Off Wedding Dress" questions/comments here

totally agree! thats why i think i may just pay the remainder and have it shipped to see what it looks like on me. i guess i was just bummed at first glance. i was planning on having a local seamstress add some bling, like a belt or some type of embelishment and i am sure she could try and fix any imperfections too. i will send back the couple concerns of the rouching that i see, and see what she replies. i was just worried about time : /

i was hoping to already have the dress in my hands so if i did not like it i had some time to get another, but with the requests for changes its taking longer than expected :/

Ok girls, time to share some dresses and pics. My friend, who is getting married in July 2010, bought an authentic LaSposa sample dress for $1000 (reg $1750) last year, and then she ordered a knockoff San Patrick Palma (a mermaid)from Ebay for $270 including a 2m Mantilla veil with tulle and lace and shipping. Now, she loves the knockoff more than her LaSposa, will wear the knockoff as her main dress.

This is the real San Patrick

They've asked if it's ok to make the dress 2 inches longer for the height of shoes? The shoes I will be wearing have 3.5 inch heels,so should I say yes to making it 2 inches longer or not?

keep us posted! I really like the Vera Wang Diana too, but after my research, most of the chinese folks can only replicate it at 80-90%...because it is a very complexe dress like yours. I got a picture of the dress made by Duosheng, and it looked like 75% alike.
Due to my pickiness, I decided to choose another dress.

Thanks, I love the way it came out. I'm not really sure what material they used.. This was what she told me "we will use ,softer and thinner satin"..I guess I'll see what it's like when I receive it.. :)

Hi Janine,

I used Bella Bridal Veils by BellaBridalVeils on Etsy for my veil. I may email her to see if I can get a white one since I think the white may look better than the Ivory one I got, with the dress I had made...

i'm going to be ordering my dress from landybridal. we already spoke on the changes I need made to the dress and it's just gonna cost me an addition $50 for the change. I'm actually thinking about not making that change though.

 

so i'll ask your opinion...I love the lace up back but this dress is made with buttons. I don't want to pop out of the buttons if i'm moving and eating. but how would it look with the lace up back with the bow on the side?? here's the dress

Hiya, I´m hoping you knock-off experts can help me. I already have the dress that i´m planning on wearing, but i´ve seen a picture of a dress on here that i absolutely love, it´s a Reem Acra, from a few years ago, and i think i´ve seen it on one of the knock off sites, but i´ve searched and searched and can´t find it now..

 

Here is a picture of the dress (hopefully)

Cheers

thanks! I was not sure if it would be too much going on in the back with the lace up and the bow on the side.

If you can find a picture then you can probably send it to one of the makers. If you email the pic they will probably tell you whether or not they can make it and give you a price.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
